Ineluctable Modality

I've begun what is considered one of the most difficult passages of Ulysses to read, a stream of consciousness, called Proteus. However, once deciphered, gorgeous passages. Here's a bit from the 1967 adaptation starring  Maurice Roëves as Stephen Dedalus.

I'm a sucker for passages like: "You find my words dark. Darkness is in our souls, do you not think? Flutier. Our souls, shame-wounded by our sins, cling to us yet more, a woman to her lover clinging, the more the more."
